If you are not a baker, you may think the idea of owning a bakers rack is a little bit of overkill. But just because you will not be filling the shelves with a number of loaves of bread and various fruit filled pies every day does not mean a bakers rack can't serve practical purposes in your home. You can have the old world charm of the furniture, but put it to work with more modern uses. Generally, bakers racks would belong in the kitchen, near where all the cooking is done. In today's kitchen that means you can use bakers racks as great places for excess storage. Some bakers racks have cabinets on the bottom that can be used as a way to de-clutter your kitchen counter tops. Think about all those things you have in the kitchen that you periodically use, but generally just take up space. They could be stored in the bottom of bakers racks. This is also a way to hide those modern appliances that can take away from your country kitchen appearance.
Much like the chameleon, baker's racks are the kitchen furniture piece that can blend into any kitchen environment. It used to be that the baker's racks were an integral part of the country kitchen. They were a place where the bread and pastries for the day were set out to cool, and the scent of those fresh cooked goodies would be the alarm to the nostrils that would tell the whole family that it was time to get ready for dinner. While baker's racks today can serve that same role, for those with a love of baking, there are also a number of other services they have started to take on in the kitchen.
The kitchen rack has become very popular today because it adds scroll designs, and fancy metalwork to a kitchen that is usually only for cooking and baking. They can be used in almost any room of the house for displaying houseplants or collectibles. They are usually constructed of wood or metal and can have shelves made of glass, wood, or metal. Stainless steel bakers racks typically have shelves that are made of wood, glass, or metal. They can be very simple in structure or they can have elaborate decorations that could include fancy metalwork or ancient scroll designs. Even bakers racks and kitchen racks that are constructed of wood will have the open shelving design that was common many years ago.
